Re: Changes to rcsinfo/verifymsg not taking effect

FreeBSD 4.5 (and later) cvs has a feature for playing with CVS/Template:

       -T     Create/Update CVS/Template by copying it  from  the
              (local)  repository.   This  option  is  useful for
              developers maintaining a local cvs  repository  but
              commiting  to  a remote repository.  By maintaining
              CVS/Template the remote commits will still be  able
              to  bring up the proper template in the commit edi-
              tor  session.   Available  with  the  checkout  and
              update commands.

that does allow for the updating of CVS/Template files. It seems like a
good idea to me as there are other reasons (such as the administrator
updating the rcsinfo file) for the local CVS/Template to be updated.

If you wish to take a look at the FreeBSD sources for cvs, you may find
the information you need by going to the URL:

The feature was added to the RELENG_4 branch on 2001-09-21 18:00:30 UTC.
